I see your point, Sheerness is a bit of a trek for me though! With all the controversy I've only been able to have a proper look at your site now. Lifeboat pics are very interesting. Don't leave this mishap put you off, you should still post the pics. I'm sure people are very interested in seeing them.

Keep up the good work David

Lifejackets

The point is that you presented things ther way that they are NOT.
i.e. You said your boats are used by the RNLI but you stated in your latest statement that your boats are bought by SOME RNLI memebers (who??).
I said I have bought a Parker 630D for use by the crew at Sheerness to gain extra training in during their own time ........other crews i know have bought various other makes such as delta and Humber read the details carefully also re lifejackets how can you possibly preach what you obviously do not practice ? I am finally ending this debate and hope that you can see clearly now as the famous lyrics depict..............

Adios

1. Bottle is empty. A photo is not always what it seems to be
2. Boat is on the mooring by a jetty, my wife is reading a book we are jumping on and off it why should we were life jackets
3. As for the translation good effort
So as we say in Sheerness:??? p??te ta p???µata p??s?p??? Manos. ? pe????? µ?? e??a? µ?a ?d??t??? pe????? ?a? de? s?µa??e? ?aµ?a pa??ßas?. ?p?? ??eµ?ste ??t? ?a? ?ata???te ??? ?a? p??te ta p???µata e????a. Fa??este ?a e?ste p??? e?????? ?a? ??ete pa?a???se? ap?? ta ?e????ta. ?a?a?a?? s??????ste t? grammer µ?? ded?µ???? ?t? a?t? e??a? µ?a ???ssa p?? de? ???s?µ?p????µa?

but makes me Lough as you say that ..... you have to relax and freeze outside but good effort.
Debate over and peace is called for now I hope

Hello Manos White flags are up

Thanks for the reply. Glad to see hostilities are over.

It was entertaining at the very least. I did say that My Greek was not what it should be. French and italian are Ok though.

Santorini is a wonderful place I have spent quite a lot of my time there during working on Superyachts. I hope its still as peaceful and idylic as I remember.

Wish you well with your business .......no hard feelings

Cheers David - Sorry for the wotnot bit your name is quite confusing (to me any way)
Re Santorini is nice quite and peacefull place. Lots of water to play about and a huge Caldera (10 miles long) to go fishing and swim.
The peak months i.e. 2nd week July to end August better to go to Uganda rather than Santorini . But I still prefer Cape Sounion pitty my business is in Santorini
Not hard feelings is only a virtual world on the net

David (may I call you that?)

Still think the waters are a little muddy so to speak….but I’m a bit slow !!!
Your avowed intention was to ‘show a picture or two to the site members’…but the link you posted caused a few questions…

Your site does appear to have strong endorsement from RNLI. Is it official practice to use the logo like this? The url also seems to imply it’s an official lifeboat site? I have to confess at a glance (and with my general lack of thoroughness) I would have thought from your site that that particular RIB make was the official boat for the RNLI for that area.

You say you don’t stand to gain but a little later you say you’re about to become a dealer for that particular make of RIB?( RIBEX will be an important commercial arena for many in the business.) Am I missing something?

There is now a commercial section which might help your business?

Might also be worth having a chat with Andre who deals with the same RIB make on a very peaceful (and courteous) basis?

Missus (aka Kathleen...a paddy BTW in case you get cross!!!!)
